Through NBA Basketball School Australia, we deliver a holistic player development program that focuses on an athlete-first approach and enhances the development and growth of participants on and off the court. This program will allow young athletes in Australia to develop competence and confidence in their physical and social skills and be active for life.


Program philosophy

The NBA Basketball School Australia’s philosophy is to share the game of basketball with young athletes by teaching skills, values, and wellness in a positive, fun and safe environment.

The holistic approach is intended to strengthen youth basketball culture and teach life lessons to inspire, connect and empower young athletes to succeed on and off the court. We believe this philosophy leads to the development of complete and well-rounded basketball players and strong role models in society.
